Purchase Eddie Enough!
Sometimes a child just needs a successful role model to motivate him. Eddie Minetti is a paradigm for older kids with ADHD. According to his family, he “talks and listens fast,” and he’s always getting in trouble at school — until he’s diagnosed with and treated for ADD.
By the end of the book, Eddie is taking medication, receiving support, and leading a happier, more manageable life. The moral? All is not lost just because you’ve been diagnosed with ADD.
